Dear Diary Series: Episode 1

Keris De Villiers' Coronavirus Voice Notes

Alongside her husband Lee, Keris De Villiers runs three pubs under The Ram Pub Company. As BII News alumni and three times Licensee of the Year Award (LOYA) finalists, we wanted to get Keris' take on life since "we all got Corona-d", in her words.

She talks receiving the news that pubs were to close, the process of closing, and what she and Lee did in the days after. We hope this brings some solace to other licensees as we all push through the pandemic together.
